    I can buy my iPod Touch online from Apple, or locally at a mall store. If I buy it locally I save shipping costs but will pay local sales tax.
    Does Apple charge local sales tax for online purchases?

    I'm debating 8 vs 16 gig. I don't anticipate downloading many, if any, movies and I don't expect to carry around a huge music library. I'll be using the device largely as a PDA-- address book, calendar, plus a drug database I use in nursing, some fun games etc. On one hand, extra memory never hurts. OTOH, the extra $70 could buy a LOT of apps. Any thoughts?

    Apple charges tax, and orders over $50(I think) are shipped free.

    I bought the 8 gig and I have over 1,000 songs, 2275 photos, several videos and podcasts, and about 20 additional apps and I stil have about 600MB left.
    8 Is Enough.

    8 is enough until you run out of space. I have 32 gig and it is a little over half full. No movies on it. :apple:

    and i have 16...and have enough space haha...

    apps wont fill the memory up..so dont worry about that..the only issue would be 1) if you are a really big music person 2) really big video person.

    If you travel...i would say 16 GB..that way you can put 4-5 movies on it.
    if you dont travel much...8GB should do it.
